Performing Arts Dance

Performance Dance

Performance Dance is a specialized dance program for students with a high level of performance and technical ability. Not only do our students participate in extensive modern, jazz and ballet technical training, they also learn movement therapies that strengthen their bodies and enhance their dancing. Student choreography is a key component of the program. Dancers learn to create their own solos, duets and group dances through a variety of improvisation and composition workshops. Performance dancers work frequently with professional dancers and choreographers who are active in Toronto, Canada, and internationally. Recent guest choreographers include Riley Sims (Artistic Director of Social Growl Dance), Nicola Pantin (Dora Award Winner, Stratford Chroeographer), Valerie Stanois (Rock Of Ages Broadway) & Angela Blumberg. The results of their creative and collaborative work is highlighted throughout our performance season.
